Masculine Sympathy Gatefold – by Holly McMillen

“Blessed are they that mourn…” Matthew 5:4

Holly continues her series on fancy fold cards. The masculine sympathy card she created today is a gatefold, another version of a tri-fold, but today’s card has a belly band for added interest. Holly’s card has beautiful edge detailing created with a border die. Take a look:


Here is Holly’s sympathy card, closed and with the belly band on.

Great paper choices for a masculine card, set off by the black accents.


And here is the card opened once the belly band is slipped off.

Words of comfort from Matthew 5:4 are revealed on the inside.

This is a beautiful card design for a male or female recipient.

You can find Holly’s post on her blog here.
